BNTGirls Review: isoi Bulgarian Rose Intensive Energizing Cream*

One of the exciting things that happened to me in Korea was actually seeing the brands being sold in stores like Olive Young or Watsons, or seeing physical single shops like the isoi shop in Ewha. Many of the brands I have tried for BNT Girls aren’t out in the actual Manila market, so it was kind of a fun experience, seeing them in the flesh. The i’m SO intelligent Bulgarian Rose Intensive Energizing Cream* would actually have been so perfect for that cold, windy afternoon we spent at Ewha. My fingers literally felt like they were going to fall off. This cream is an anti-aging product that aims to solve all aging issues. It contains 25 different natural ingredients, all to help lift saggy skin, whiten, and moisturize dry skin. The end goal for this product is to bring back the original vitality of the skin and to aid the skin’s regenerative ability. Since the cream is so thick, it’s meant to be used as the last step of the basic skin care process, …

REVIEW: isoi Bulgarian Rose Pore Tightening Tonic Essence*

The isoi Bulgarian Rose Pore Tightening Tonic Essence* “make[s] your pore skinny.” It’s a multi-functional toner and essence that reduces enlarged pores, controls sebum, and removes dead skin cells. It also restores radiance, hydrates, and helps increase skin elasticity. After cleansing the face, you wet a cotton pad with a generous amount of the tonic essence and rub all over the face. This is designed for oily skin (not me) so its full effect is a bit lost on me. However, I do like their direction as a company, promoting safe beauty. isoi uses natural ingredients, instead of the potentially harmful chemical ingredients found in most luxury cosmetics. Since it is a toner/essence, I find that it doesn’t “refresh” my skin quite as much as a usual toner would. There is a very, very slightly sticky feeling on the skin left after use, presumably to act as a moisturizer/essence. I think it might be best to follow this up with your normal moisturizer, as I found the feeling to be slightly unpleasant. The essence itself …

First Impressions: iSOi Bulgarian Rose Blemish Care Serum*

The iSOi Bulgarian Rose Blemish Care Serum* was another skin care item that came in my last BNT box. Fun Fact: iSOi stands for “I’m SO Intelligent.” Here’s a product description I got from EC21: Concept: Intensive, quick and effective anti-spot care — Improvement of uneven skin tone, blemishes and pigmentation (whitening function) While it fills sunken area with moisture, arbutin and natural vitamins from Bulgarian rose oil, as whitening agents, even out and clear up red skin tone. — Quick and gentle soothing serum (anti-trouble care) Natural anti-trouble ingredients including centella asiatica prevent clogged pores and quickly calm sensitive skin. — Continuous supply of moisture (24 hour-lasting skin hydration) Ultra fine rose oil having superior skin penetration and natural skin hydrating ingredients deep penetrate through the skin and keep it soft and supple for 24 hours and increase the skin’s own regenerative power by strengthening the skin barrier.
